My 2019 Plan!

We all know that I love to plan. I’m the master of planning. I am the Planinator, Planatron? She-Plan, Plan-Woman! And lots of other planning-isms… Therefore I obviously have a plan for 2019. I am positive that it will not be as intense as last year, I really should look at slowing down and finding some more ways to relax, spending time with my loved ones and replenishing my soul! I suppose then, that is my plan. Do less, live more and relax. I do have a few things lined up though… I couldn’t go cold turkey! A trip to … Continue reading My 2019 Plan!

“What’s your USP?”…

  In my very early days of serious blogging I was chatting to a lady about my blog and she asked to see it. I gave her my site address and she had a quick look. She asked me, “What’s your USP?” USP wasn’t a term I was familiar with so I drew a blank. “Your unique selling point. What is it?” “Oh well, I don’t know. Me, I suppose” Well apparently that wasn’t a good enough answer for this lady who actually had no influence on me or my blog… To be perfectly honest though I think it was … Continue reading “What’s your USP?”…

Just one day at a time.

I will promote the importance of understanding mental health issues until it is no longer a taboo subject. I will happily stand up in front of people and tell them how I once found it so difficult to leave the house that my Dad had to literally pick me up and carry me in to the car. I know how it feels to have zero energy because you’ve not eaten for days but every time you put a spoonful of food near your mouth you are on the brink of being sick and it makes you cry. To me that … Continue reading Just one day at a time.

My Inspiration

People inspire me every day. Friends of mine who I know are going through hard times, financially, emotionally, physically. Yet they get up and get on with it. Mainly because they don’t have a choice. Well I suppose they could choose to just lie down and give in, that’s such an easy option these days. These people, however, they fight. They know life is tough and they know things could get worse and they could potentially be facing some s**t times for months to come, it doesn’t keep them down though. They have learnt that the good times are waiting, … Continue reading My Inspiration

Where do I want to go…?

  Where do I want to go? In short, the answer to that would be ‘everywhere’! Aside from being very expensive, there’s just not enough time to go everywhere. Here is a short list I have compiled, this list is not exhaustive. When it comes to things I want to do, places I want to go my lists will never be complete. This is where I remember my mantra. “You can do anything, not everything” – David Allen This list will change throughout my life as I visit these places and then add new ones but here it is as … Continue reading Where do I want to go…?

Keeping up with the Jones’

How often are you comparing yourself to others? Do you look at other people and wish you had their hair, their shoes, their money? Do you tell yourself that their children are progressing far quicker than yours? They’ve lost more weight than you? Do you constantly ask why they have everything? How is it fair that they have their dream job, dream house, new car, perfect relationship, well-behaved children… Stop! Stop it right now. I mean it, stop it right this second. Those lives that you see are not perfect. I can assure you that no matter how ‘together’ you … Continue reading Keeping up with the Jones’
